Star Caps Update: Minnesota Judge Upholds Suspension

The Star Tribune is reporting that Minnesota state court Judge Gary Larson has upheld the four-game NFL suspensions of Minnesota Vikings Kevin and Pat Williams. I have not seen the opinion, but the Tribune notes that Judge Larson found that the NFL (and not the Vikings) is the employer of the Williamses and that the suspensions violated Minnesota state law, but upheld the suspensions because the violations did not harm the Williamses. Judge Larson is holding a hearing later today to determine if the suspensions will be stayed pending their appeal within the Minnesota state court system.
